Merry and bright: 7 ethically made holiday gifts

Merry and bright: 7 ethically made holiday gifts


Join the fight against extreme poverty


It’s that time of year—full of traditions, merriment, and celebrations with family and friends! Here at ONE, we’ve selected seven gifts that will bring good cheer to everyone on your list, and make a positive impact in Africa. All that’s left to decide is what you want to give as gifts, and what you should keep for yourself!

1. Holiday stationary


Send your merriest wishes to your friends and family with this vibrant holiday card set! The design, inspired by the cocoa fruit, was created by a Kenyan-based artisan in collaboration with our friends at To the Market. Proceeds from every purchase go to MarieMae business school, which empowers female artisans with entrepreneurial and business skills—so every card represents a holiday wish, and a meaningful contribution to the women attending MarieMae!

2. Shegaw scarves


Baby, it’s cold outside! This chic accessory, made by fashionABLE, is perfect for cold winter days and is handwoven from 100% Ethiopian cotton.

3. Crewneck sweatshirt


This new crewneck sweatshirt is so soft and cozy, you’ll never want to take it off! It’s a cold-weather staple that every activist on your list will appreciate.

4. FEED bag with burlap pouch


Rumor has it, Santa’s sack is a FEED Bag just like this! But it’s not just a beautifully-made bag: The purchase of each one provides a meal for 10 school children around the world. It’s made from 100% organic cotton and comes with a festive burlap pouch.

5. ONE mug


Cold days call for warm drinks—pair this mug with coffee, tea, or cocoa to give as a thoughtful package!

6. The Agatha & The Jackson beanies


Your loved one can stay bundled all winter long with these handwoven beanies! Each one is signed by the woman in Uganda who made it, and thanks to Krochet Kids’ programs, your purchase helps provide the individual artisans with the assets, skills, and knowledge to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.

7. Moleskine notebook


Keep holiday plans organized with our exclusive Moleskine notebooks—they are great for writing your favorite holiday recipes, guest lists, and gift lists!

No matter the celebration, shop the ONE store for festive gear, artisan products, and the perfect holiday gifts.
